Thread: Realistic damage to rudders and propellors? | Forums

    Captains:

    Does SH3 use specific damage to limit the abilities of ships that you are trying to sink? For example... a pesky DD earned a Falke torpedo, it was beatiful to see the torpedo home in on its engines, and detonate under the entire stern area. But, if I'd tried this against a BB or cruiser; would the damage be enough in game to disable the propellors, rudders, etc? If a CV is torpedoed to the point that it is listing, is it still able to launch planes? Can ships still make max speed even after being hit in the side, with a nice big hole with seawater pouring in?

    Its a great game/sim so far, only in 42 due to limited play time; but its much fun. And torpedo hits are so satisfying to watch.

    To answer tour question, YES!
    If you hit the props or rudder of a ship then take a look with the external camera, you can physically see that the ships props have been blown off. Ships sometimes slowdown after a torpeedo hit, but it depends where they are hit.

    For instance, if you hit a destroyer on its bow when its is moving fast, it gradually slows down sinking bow first until it sinks with it stern sticking out of the water.

    As for AC's you dont see planes phycially take off from them, instead the planes spawn in their location.
